What this hack does:

You can backup and restore your mysql database via Admin CP!
Lot of people have problems to restore their database du to server timeouts!
With this hack you will never have any problems!
But anyhow you will use this hack with your own risk!

Requirements: Unix, GZIP, MySQL, MySQLDump

I am not a programmer! I just tried to implement this feature into my vbulletin and it works!
Maybe some of you, have the possibility to improve this hack! You are welcome!

Enjoy guys=))

I had this problem.

Be sure your pfad variable is

your root(as called by root.php)/forums/admin/backup

So you have to have the root deal, plus the path to the backup directory (without the slash at the end)

then your
download_url=www.yourdomain.com/forums/admin/backup/


Also, you don't have to rename it when you back it up (unless your changing it to the date (what i do)). You only need to make it backup.sql.gz when you are restoring from a backup =P.

Here we go :-)

In the line of the root path, just fill in the root path plus the folders to your backup folder. In your example.

home/mysitesname/public_html/forums/admin/backup

your download url must be:

http://www.yoursite.com/forums/admin/backup/

thats all!

Except it should be

"/home/mysitesname/public_html/forum/admin/backup"

and

"http://www.yoursite.com/forum/admin/backup/"

You forgot the first slash, and he has just forum for his directory, not forums.
